Behavioral Therapy Approach

Behavioral Therapy is a client-centered approach that focuses on identifying and changing potentially self-destructive or unhealthy behaviors. It is based on the concept that all behaviors are learned and that unhealthy behaviors can be changed. The goal is to reinforce desirable behaviors and eliminate unwanted ones. In our practice, we utilize techniques that involve self-awareness, mindfulness, and strategies to modify behavior patterns.

This approach is particularly effective in addressing a variety of mental health issues, including anxiety, stress, and phobias. By focusing on current problems and looking to change unhelpful patterns of behavior, clients can develop more constructive ways of coping with life’s challenges.

Depression and Mood Disorders

Behavioral Therapy is highly effective in treating depression and mood disorders. It helps individuals understand the link between their thoughts, behaviors, and feelings, and how these can contribute to their mood disorders. Through this therapy, clients learn to identify negative thought patterns and behaviors that exacerbate their condition and replace them with healthier, more positive alternatives.

Our therapists work with clients to develop coping strategies and problem-solving skills. These skills are not just about managing symptoms but also about building resilience and improving overall well-being, empowering clients to lead more balanced and satisfying lives.

Navigating Common Challenges

Living in Los Angeles comes with its unique set of challenges, from navigating the pressures of a career in a highly competitive environment to maintaining personal relationships in a fast-paced city. Behavioral Therapy can be particularly beneficial in helping individuals manage these stressors. By learning how to modify maladaptive behaviors and developing better coping mechanisms, clients can effectively navigate the challenges of their daily lives.

We focus on practical skills that can be applied in real-life situations, enhancing the ability of our clients to handle stress, manage time, and maintain a healthy work-life balance.

“Dr. Bentson has shown real compassion and care through this whole process. It was also unique to experience how Dr. Bentson adds somatic-body based modes, and skill building practices to some of our sessions — these methods were very helpful for me. I highly recommend Dr. Bentson to anyone that is seeking help.”
